Urubamba Alpaca Pullover

Item #620951
Rated 4 out of 5 by from beautiful textile, warm and cozy This is really a stunning textile, but the "S/M" does run extremely large, and is not as long as it appears to be in the photo. (My husband thought it was 6 inches shorter, but that's probably an exaggeration). Because it's so voluminous, as others have noted, it really has to be worn with a very slim pant! I'm 5'8, 160 lbs, and think if I were shorter it would just be too much bulk. I definitely think the sweater would look best with a turtleneck, as shown, but I can't wear them and it looks OK with a long sleeved shirt. In my opinion, the piece would be improved with any neckline other than crew--whether a boat neck, a small scoop, or a V. It's super cozy and quite soft except, for some reason, the band around the neck is a bit scratchy. The beautiful, varied colors palette and textured pattern make for a unique item, and very warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maybe not for everyone but perfect for me. Other reviewers complained that this pullover is overwhelming, and it certainly could be on a petite frame. But I'm 5'7 and it's perfect for me and I love it. Great colors, great drape, really cozy for cold wintery days, but not too hot and heavy to wear indoors. Looks chic with leggings and a turtleneck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular color explosion, warm, and stylish I need to eat my words in a previous review. I had tried on the Urubamba alpaca pullover on a few different occasions, and each time I felt as though it had just swallowed me since it was so large and unstructured. I was drawn to this garment because of the artistry of the knit and the strikingly beautiful color combinations. I think I finally tried it on while I was wearing very slim, high-waisted pants, and it appeared more well-balanced on me rather than overwhelmingly large. I should take more lessons from the talented designers who style the PC models. This is a beautiful garment that I now know how to wear, and the knit is sturdy enough to resist pulling that might otherwise damage more delicate pieces. It will accompany slim pants or jeans of a variety of shades, and it's just a cozy, stylish alternative to a garden-variety sweater. I'm so happy I didn't give up on this garment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In LOVE! I read a review about this item and wanted to purchase this over a year ago then I did not see it available until just before Christmas. The quality of this piece is stellar, absolutely beautiful weaving. The weight of this is not lightweight or flimsy. It drapes beautifully and feels divine. The colors are fabulous and paired with their turtleneck colors which, I need to buy, looks fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Original & Cozy Beautiful piece. The color are gorgeous and the fabric is very soft. You can dress up by wearing a silk blouse underneath or a blouse with flare sleeves. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, heavy-weight pancho-type sweater I love it, it's so warm and comfortable. It is large - fits like a poncho with arm holes. I've gotten lots of compliments on it. The colors are rich and vibrant, this is a unique piece.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Itchy I love the look of this top, I was excited to get this to add into my wardrobe but unfortunately it was VERY itchy and also too heavy, in my opinion, to travel with.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful and warm! Arrived earlier this month. Am very pleased with this pullover. It really is great looking and plenty warm enough to sub for a coat on cooler days in my climate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT! Just arrived and the long-ish wait was justified. This is an amazing sweater! Plan to wear it over long-sleeved turtleneck sweater, dress, or tee. Would also be sensational with jeans (but recommend some long-sleeved undershirt or garment given the sleeves on this sweater are only elbow-length). Extremely light weight, yet warm (characteristic of alpaca). The sole reason not to recommend this sweater to a friend is purely selfish--I want to be the ONLY one who has it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! Gorgeous sweater. It is large, but that is by design. Wish I could have afforded the matching hand warmers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overwhelmingly large I tried this on in the NYC store, and the design, colors and knit were showstoppers. The knit is truly a piece of art. As a garment, however, even the size S/M was overwhelming. I do have a somewhat small frame, so it's possible that others may prefer this fit, but I felt as though I was wearing a blanket. As I headed back to the fitting room from the 3-way mirror, another woman stopped to admire the knit and had the same reaction to the piece as I did. I'd love to see this as a slightly more tailored long sleeved cardigan or somewhat more fitted pullover.
